An Edmonton Hidden Gem - Blue Skys Art Lofts + Market 

If that's not enough... let us introduce you to Blue Skys Art Lofts + Market!

Blue Skys Art Lofts + Market is located in the old Warehouse District just behind Oliver Square and Grant MacEwan University. Sound familiar? It should, because the 24,000 square foot former clothing factory houses a multitude of unique art lofts, a live theatre, coffee shop, and a multi-use entertainment venue. A diverse community of artists including a florist, jewellery designer, silk screener, two graphic designers, multiple painters, photographers, a one-of-a-kind handbag designer, one-of-a-kind gift bag designer, local DJs, improv actors and two mobile caterers including Drift and Nomad Kitchen are already using the space to create outstanding inspiration for the city of Edmonton.
